Season 2013-2014

The Lion In Winter

by James Goldman

Named One Of The Best Shows Of The Decade (2000-2009) - Independent Weekly

As the sun sets on his reign, Henry Plantagenet, "the greatest power in a thousand years," calls his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and their three sons to Chinon for the negotiation of a treaty and a marriage contract.

Locked behind the palace doors, a deadly game of alliances and betrayals unfolds as each of the players fueled by anger and old wounds, moves to control who will sit on the throne when Henry is gone.

"Ira David Wood III and Lynda Clark, whose robust performances as Henry II and Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine gave this show an unusually crunchy center." - Byron Woods, Independent Weekly
